Please join us in an event to celebrate Michael's life & to raise money in his name.

Proceeds from this event will go to a Scholarship Fund for a student currently attending Illinois Media School. Michael completed his education in media at Illinois Media School & later returned to serve as Director of Education, which allowed him to pursue his passion for helping others through educational support & guidance.

TICKET COST DETAILS: A portion of each ticket (a little over a third of the cost) will go to the Scholarship Fund and the remaining will include the cost of food: pizza, chicken tenders, salad, & soft drinks as well as a limited amount of domestic beer & wine. We will also have some small door prizes that will be given out via random drawings for those attending throughout the night. PLEASE REGISTER BY SATURDAY, JUNE 10TH so we can give a final count to the restaurant.

RAFFLES: We will be holding a 50/50 "Split the Pot" Cash Raffle for $10 per ticket and a Gift Raffle with tickets available for $5 per ticket or 5 tickets for $20. All proceeds from the raffles will go directly to the Scholarship Fund.

T-SHIRTS: MLB T-shirts will also be available to purchase for $20 each via this link:

You can choose to ship to yourself, or you can pick up at the event. All proceeds of the t-shirt sales will go to the Special Olympics, one of the other charities that Michael was passionate about. Order your t-shirt by Friday, May 19th!

DONATIONS: To make a donation to the gift raffle (goods or services, etc) or to make a monetary donation, please contact

PICTURES: We'd like to create a slideshow to play on a loop at the event, so we're asking everyone to send in any favorite pictures of Michael you may have to share. Please send those to

Thank you all so much for your continued love & support. It truly means the world to us & we look forward to celebrating Michael's life & continuing to make a difference in his name.
